And after recording their first win at Gorgie since on Saturday, Tom Hateley has high hopes their latest success will prove to be a positive omen in their quest to land a place in the Europa League next season.
The Fir Park defender, who returned to the Well starting line-up after missing Wednesday's 2-1 win over Celtic, said: "We knew that after the win against Celtic it would be vital to take something from this game and really back that up.
"It has been a long time since we have had back-to-back wins in the SPL and to achieve that by beating Celtic and Hearts after the result we had at Ross County underlines the character we have at Motherwell.
"But success in the SPL is all about developing momentum and consistency and that has to be our aim going into the final four games before the split.
"We had a massive win at Tynecastle last season when Michael Higdon got the winner and the big man did the trick again there. Hopefully that can prove a good omen for our pursuit of a European place."
As Hateley alluded to, Saturday's 2-1 win over Gary Locke's Hearts brought Motherwell's second win on the trot, with you having to go back until September for the last occasion they achieved that feat.
The Steelmen looked to be home and dry within the first eight minutes as two early strikes put them almost out of sight.
First, James McFadden fed the ball to Michael Higdon who managed to steer it beyond Jamie MacDonald in the Hearts goal from the edge of the area on three minutes.
Nicky Law, who was again a star performer for Stuart McCall, added a second five minutes later, with ex-Fir Park striker John Sutton netting in the second half for the hosts.
The win puts Well three points clear in second spot, virtually guaranteeing them a top-six place with a trip up to Aberdeen next up for the Steelmen.
And with Euro rivals Inverness facing a tough trip to Dundee and Ross County hosting Celtic, it is a chance for Well to potentially stretch their lead in third to six points.
"Every result is so big now, that is why we were so disappointed last week at Ross County with the manner of the defeat, it's not the time of the season to do that," said club skip Keith Lasley.
"There's going to be so many teams taking points off each other, which could be a good thing for us with the position that we are in.
"Once the top six is secured then you can re-assess your targets and you can push on.
"We want to try and be the best of the rest."
